    VH Commodore front and rear bar molds

    they do have a a badge that is similar to the bumper badge but you have to use adhesive of some sort to stick it on. as for the front grill and boot lid badges...all mine are new from rare spares and look and fit good imo

    VH Commodore front and rear bar molds

    Sounds like a good idea...but id be more inclined to let rare spares do it and look after all the quality control. I dare say it will cost more than 5K to produce the moulds They are slowly increasing the parts list for early commodores as they can see the demand is growing. I was at my local...

    Advice for 355

    heres an example :blah blah: ....well my engine basically! I built my own 355 It cost me approx. 12k + new 4500 8" stall converter and a new set off 3.55 diff gears And all I started with was a bare VS 5.0l block....nothing else. I had some extensive port work on the heads by HPE which flow a...

    Advice for 355

    in all honesty ditch the hydraulic cam!!... And you gotta do something with your heads as any cam with a bit of duration and lift will just be a turd!! Flat tops and a 0 deck height will see you around 11.0:1 comp depending head CC. And honestly if your going to send a motor all the way to...

    Will this 304 Combination Work?

    you say flat top pistons....then 0 decking block and heads??? that will bring the comp up to around 11:1 ish if you going to go a flat tappet cam....why not go a solid flat tappet instead of the commonly used 284/286 hydraulic?.....something like the crane 280 solid for example. if the cam and...

    304 Supercharging a COME 355 stroker questions

    definitely upselling!! if you only plan on running 8-10 psi and not spinning it much more than 6000-6500 rpm Run a scat crank, either a forged I beams or Standard H beam. A forged piston....(CP Carillo pistons).....this kit would set u back approx 1600 bux maybe more for the forged I...

    Vh sl/e 355

    I come to terms and decided my cam was too small for my converter and not really good enough to compliment and get the best out of the port work done on my heads....so I decided to pull the engine and fit in a new cam Gave it a fresh coat of paint All bolted up and ready for start up...

    Stuffed Catalytic Converter?

    if in doubt cut them out. Weld in some 200cpi ..... or 100cpi cats in there. 100cpi is illegal but I don't think a cop will crawl under the car and count them

    Electric water pump

    the thought that has always stuck in my head is that "the faster the flow the less time to cool" eg....put a cup of boiling water in a freezer for one minute and youll get 80* for example .......put another cup of boiling water in for 2mins and it will cool to 60* for example 1 however the...

    Electric water pump

    even changing to the hi flow t/stats will dramatically change the operating temps. it actually made mine run warmer than a standard t/stat...yet those hi flow ones advertise lower cooling temps

    04 SV8 S2, screen, clock & radio not working.

    id say it would be something to do with your wiring installation. maybe your "ignition on" and "constant 12V" is wired incorrect somewhere. Id go back and start from the start of what you did

    3300 seems a bit rich to me. If the car wasn't my daily ip personally do everything myself...besides the tune. Id also add a full twin 3" exhaust, Have some work done on the heads And get a cam to suit the ported heads....something to suit .600 lift int. 108 lsa

    Oilpressure

    big or high volume pumps aren't really desired as they pump way too much oil up to the rocker covers and with stock drain backs doesn't help the cause! try HPR30 oil...gives better pressure at hot idle, lubricates and puts a nice film on all the bearings. my modified standard volume jp oil pump...
